Whatever happened to men with sandwich boards? When did you last see a man wearing them? Have you ever seen a man wearing them? Where have they gone to?
I see people carrying placards around our city centres advertising businesses. I see people standing outside shops and bars with placards that point toward them. What I don't see, however, are men with sandwich boards advertising things. I can't remember the last time I saw one. Has the held-aloft-placard been proven a more successful marketing tool than the sandwich board while I wasn't paying attention? Has the sandwich board become a relic of another age like the daguerreotype or the Jacquard loom? Has anyone else even noticed their disappearance?
I think we should be told.
